From NBC news this morning there will be a 13 week extenion in states that have unemployment of more than 8.2%. NJ will be able to extend these benefits to all of us who need the extra extention. Should be in place in a couple of weeks.

I do not recalled receiving any extensions or and Emergency benefits or anything after this. I did not get any letter about anything. I am still unemployed and I think I am entitled to more benefits.
Just an update, I went to the unemployment office and they said I did not qualify for any of the extensions? My original claim was June 15th of 2008. I don't know whats going on. Is it because I was self-employed and I sold my business? The business was too many hours for me to run, therefore I wanted a regular 9-5 job, however am I penalized for this? If anyone has any ideas on this I would greatly appreciate it.

When the Senate passes this bill, how long do you gauge it will take for us to receive letter in mail for those who qualify? Thanks.

It's a bit more complicated than NBC reported. Go to the following thread to catch up on the status of the next extension (after EB) and see the twists and turns it's going through.

This Q and A attempts to answer key questions about the two tiers of benefits. How many weeks of benefits am I entitled to? Workers in low unemployment states are eligible for a total of 20 weeks of benefits, while workers in high unemployment states are eligible for 33 weeks of benefits. High unemployment is defined as a state unemployment rate above 6% for a three month period. What is the difference between first tier and second tier benefits? In all 50 states, those who exhausted the 13 weeks of EUC benefits before the passage of the new law in November are now eligible for an existing 7 weeks of extended benefits. These are called additional first tier benefits. If they live in a state with an unemployment rate of 6 percent or above (over a three month period), workers are eligible for an additional 13 weeks of second tier benefits.

You sound like you know what your talking about so I have a question for you....I live in Tn and have my original claim through New Jersey...My original claim is about to run out in one more payment. Do you have any idea if I will qualify for any of these extensions you have spoke of or that I have read about, and if so, will New Jersey contact me or do I need to contact them when I file my last report? Thanks.......
